Top 25 Most Wanted Men In Finland


The final game for the gold medals at the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship was emotional.

In the end, both Team Finland and Team Russia won. Finland won gold. Russia won silver. It was a close game.

As an avid  “Balderisomaniac“, I published an article on how Helmut Balderis performed when he played vs. Suomi.

Now here goes the list of Team USSR Top Guns or Most Wanted Men in Suomi – the Soviet players that scored the most playing against Team Finland.
